Liverpool has agree transfer of Premier League record breaking midfielder

Liverpool has reportedly agreed to sign record-breaking midfielder of the english premier league side, Harvey Elliott in what is going to be considered a transfer coup.

Elliott is the only youngest player ever to have played in the Premier League, and the England U17 player has set to depart Fulham this summer.

He is one of the foremost sought-after 16-year-old in Europe, having been tracked by Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and RB Leipzig.

And Elliott was set to join Liverpool, according to reports, as Jurgen Klopp’s European champions look to build on their trophy success from last season.

Elliott became the youngest player ever to appear in the Premier League in may when he came on as a late substitute against Wolves – aged 16 years and 30 days.

Before that, he had played in the EFL Cup aged just 15 years and 174 days.
He has rejected a scholarship with Fulham, and will instead sign for Liverpool, according to the Telegraph.

The report says a significant compensation package will be agreed between the clubs.

Elliott will not be able to sign a professional contract with Liverpool until he turns 17 next April when a three-year deal will be the longest deal he can be offered under rules governing young players.

Following Elliott’s Premier League debut against Wolves, Fulham captain Tom Cairney said: “He’s been a sensation since he joined in training a few months ago.

“He doesn’t look out of place and does some bits of magic that everyone says ‘wow.’
“His perspective and his belief in himself at such a young age are scary.”
“He’s got an excellent football brain, an eye for goal and could be a very entertaining player,” Cairney added.
“Hopefully he will have a long and successful career.”

Elliott is the latest success for Fulham’s academy – the club sold Patrick Roberts to Manchester City in 2015 for around £12 million when the England junior international was 18. Ryan Sessegnon, another academy product aged 19, is expected to move to a Premier League club this summer.

And Elliott’s England U17 team-mate Louie Barry, a 16-year-old at West Bromwich Albion, has been at the centre of a transfer battle between Barcelona and Paris-Saint Germain.
